A pair of bouts have been added to the February UFC Fight Night 61 card that will take place from Brazil.

Set for February 22 from the Gigantinho Gymnasium in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Cezar Ferreira will square off with Sam Alvey and Adriano Martins meets Rustam Khabilov.

Ferreira (8-3) was the winner of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil’s first season and is 4-1 overall with the promotion. He is coming off a win over Andrew Craig.

Alve (24-6) dropped his Octagon debut to Tom Watson, but rebounded with a knockout victory over Dylan Andrews to conclude 2014.

Martins (26-7) is 7-1 in his last eight overall, including a knockout of Juan Puig. Khabilov (17-2) saw his six-fight win streak snapped at the hands of former champion Benson Henderson earlier this year.

A rumored main event for the night is Glover Teixeira vs. Rashad Evans, but nothing has been reported by the UFC yet.
